Origins and Backstory: This sample of beyond-organic cannabis was grown indoor by the same grower of the last series of flowers. The attention paid to these plants is amazing. The description given by the seed company is pretty sparse, and really doesn't reveal much about this varietal other than it has roots in OG Kush genetics. Superb OG is apparently some kind of OG cross or inbred line. I don't know much about the cultivar, but it was certainly grown superbly.
Appearance: The buds are fully developed, very dense, and highly resinous. The abundance of still-intact resin glands give the flowers a platinum glow. Undersides of untrimmed leaves are accented with purple, while the calyxes are a classic dark green. This amalgamates to a diverse array of colors decorating the classically-beautiful cannabis flower.
Aroma: The bouquet is surprisingly a bit mild, but there is an element that conveys sheer potency. Overall the aroma is like a slightly sour or diesely lemon flavored sugar cookie--not an uncommon trait in descendants of OG Kush and Chemdawg. However, there is an aroma present in certain varietals that can only be described as "raw." It is like some raw chemical or industrial product--however, unlike most other astringent tones in cannabis, the "rawness" is very subtle. It is like a giant vat of ultra-diluted bleach solution, garnished with the most slender lemon slice. It is similar in character to Chem 34 from Greenpoint Seeds--the sheer resin content seems to be the culprit responsible for this subtlety.
Flavor: The flavor is a bit more impressive and less subtle than the aroma--a reversal of what is typical. It is consistently reminiscent of lemon pledge with industrial/chemical undertones of latex, mild rubber, and just a hint of diesel. All of the flavors present are nothing unheard of; anyone who has imbibed in the OG/Chem/Diesel genetics will have encountered these flavors before. They are nonetheless enjoyable, and Superb OG seems to put an emphasis on sweet lemon and latex.
Effects: Superb OG shines in her potency and effect. Just one or two hits is enough to make me socially awkward and start paying more attention to my inner world. You can really go deep with this one, for better and for worse. Her effect is very much felt in the head, but it is so perception-warping that interfacing with the body itself becomes a bit awkward. I am a lifelong athlete, but after smoking this weed I could barley walk around much less conduct myself around people. The body almost feels like a foreign entity you are obligated to deal with after smoking Superb OG. There is also a corporeal numbness which grows over time, creeping into full effect about 20-30 minutes after smoking. Many extremely potent strains are "creepers," describing the creeping effect of the stone which is not actualized until long after smoking--Superb OG is a great example of this, and she can be devastating over time.
Overall: Superb OG is a gorgeous cultivar, exhibiting top tier resin production, density, and above-average coloration. Her aroma and flavor are enjoyable, but I do not anticipate the terpene profile winning any contests soon. However, the potency of Superb OG is remarkable. She is stronger than some of the clone-only OGs, and the reality-warping effect remind me of Romulan on a speed-steroid cocktail. The effect oscillates between heady psychedelia and being completely grounded in one's body. It is really a bit bizarre, but also very enjoyable. While overdoing it is all-too-easy, Superb OG is a fun ride--many other uber potent varieties are not so fun after overindulging. I generally do not hold high expectations for unknown seed companies, much less ones putting out generic OGs with no credible background. However, this flower smokes really well. The flavor and bag appeal are above-average, while she truly shines in her ability to blast you into outer space, suit intact. And it should go without saying by now, but bravo to the four-mile cultivator on this specimen.
